This course is designed to increase the non-native English speaking student's general English vocabulary, so that he/she will be better able to comprehend written materials at the post secondary level. Students will use texts of non-fiction to build their knowledge of the American English language. Expanding vocabulary through a study of idioms, roots and affixes is also included. This precollege level course cannot be used to fulfill a degree requirement nor is it calculated in a student's Grade Point Average (GPA); however, the credits billed will be applied towards a student's financial aid enrollment status and enrollment status reported to the National Student Clearinghouse.
